Hello. My name is Todd Smith and I will be the Minor Atom AAA coach for the Elgin Middlesex Chiefs 2016-17.

I live in Dorchester with my wife Natalie and 3 boys, Aidan, Jack and Carson. All of my boys play hockey at the rep level and I have been involved in the game for many years helping coach teams they have played on.  I am currently an assistant coach/trainer for the Minor Peewee AAA EMC team (04) with my son Jack.

My philosophy for next season is simple:

BIG THREE

Play SMART      Compete HARD    Always RESPECT

Smart- offside, positions, changes, passing, attention during practices, listening

Hard - self explanatory, win the battles and races

Respect - teammates, coaches, officials, opposition, parents and sportsmanship

Mandate-  the development of hockey skills and knowledge of the game through consistent and constant positive re-enforcement for all players.

Team Goals:

  • Development
  • Basic technical skills improved
  • Team play
  • Defensive Play
  • Respect
  • Relationships

A strong emphasis on Technical skills development (skating, shooting, passing etc). I am a big believer in being a team player and hard work.

A good team will almost always beat a group of more talented individuals that are not playing like a team.

Meet development goals while keeping it fun.

Individual tactics and team tactics will also be incorporated for practices and will increase as the season progresses.

We will compete in 4 tournaments (TBD).

I look forward to seeing you at tryouts!

Yours in hockey,

Todd Smith
